Ah, the lazy days of summer. A game of catch, a day at the beach, ice cream dripping down smiling faces. Well, all good things must come to an end, but before this summer closes, be sure to schedule your children’s back-to-school dental checkups at the DeMartino Dental Group. At The Children’s Dental Health Center, which is led by Dr. Nelida Garcia-DeMartino, we offer the kind yet professional care you’ve come to expect from the family dentist Phillipsburg, NJ, residents know for their comprehensive dental care.
At The Children’s Dental Health Center, Dr. DeMartino and her staff treat children like the unique little patients they are. Although we do recommend that children have twice yearly checkups just like adults, they really do require some special treatment. They’re teeth and mouths are steadily growing, changing and developing. In that regard, their dental needs are somewhat different from the adult patients at DeMartino Dental Group. And then, of course, they bring their own set of “demands,” like children’s television, stuffed animals to cuddle with and children’s books. We have all of those, too, so your children will feel right at home—except we give them a prize every time they visit us.
Prevention, Prevention, Prevention
Dr. DeMartio and the team at The Children’s Dental Health Center aim to prevent your children from having any oral health problems. With this goal in mind, we have several services to help your children build a solid foundation for a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.
Fluoride Supplements. You’ve seen the advertisements for toothpaste with fluoride and that it can help fight cavities. Well, it’s all true, but often the fluoride in toothpaste is not sufficient. Therefore, we offer fluoride supplements for an added dose of protection. The treatment only takes a few minutes, and are comfortably applied in mouth trays.
Dental Sealants. Try as hard as they might, little hands can have a tough time adequately cleaning back teeth. That’s why there are dental sealants. This protective coating is a physical barrier between your child’s teeth and the bacteria that can lead to cavities in the pits and grooves of molars. What starts out as a plastic liquid hardens with the help of a special curing light. At each checkup, we’ll make sure your children’s sealants are intact, so they always have an added layer of protection against decay.
